Pokémon Stadium is coming to Nintendo Switch next week, but it’s missing the Game Boy connection feature
There’s a new Pokémon game in town that’s causing a lot of excitement in the community. Pokémon Stadium is a classic fighting game given a modern twist, and fans can’t get enough. Featuring all their favorite first generation Pokémon, players can use their wits and moves to battle to get to the top. And when the battles get too intense, players can take a break from the game’s mini-games. The ultimate Pokémon experience will make fans feel like they’ve stepped back in time.

And now the wait is finally over for Pokémon fans, as Nintendo has announced the release of the highly anticipated Pokémon Stadium for Nintendo Switch. The game will be available as part of the Nintendo 64 catalog of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. This new game version allows players to enjoy the same formula as the original N64 game with all the first generation creatures, mini-games and the possibility to enjoy multiplayer matches.
Release date of Pokémon Stadium for Nintendo Switch Online
This was announced by Nintendo via Twitter on which Pokémon Stadium will be available April 12, 2023. Subscribers to the Online Premium Package have exclusive access to the game. You can expect to face off against the 8 Gym Leaders of Kanto, take on the Pokémon League, or go head-to-head with the strongest rival in the entire game. The title also has the added benefit of online battles and mini-games thanks to the online features of the N64 catalog on Switch.
While this announcement has many Pokémon fans excited, there is a downside to the release of Pokémon Stadium for Nintendo Switch. The game cannot connect to Game Boy games available on Nintendo Switch Online. This was a feature many fans were hoping for, as previous versions of the game allowed users to transfer their Pokemon teams from Red, Blue, Yellow, and Green Editions, and even continue their games through Doduo Tower and Dodrio.
However, it seems logical that the Game Boy connection feature wouldn’t be there since classic Pokémon games aren’t available on the digital service. Despite this, many fans are hoping that Nintendo will enable this feature in the future and that Pokémon Stadium will integrate some sort of connection to Pokémon HOME.
